Hoofbeats International is here to help you pick out the perfect horseback riding vacation for YOU.

Our packages are located in the USA, Canada, South America, Europe, Africa and Mongolia. We have connections throughout the world so if there is a location you would like to ride we are happy to research the options for you.

When considering a vacation, first you should think about your riding history and confidence. How often do you ride? English or western? Are you comfortable cantering on an open trail? How many hours can you sit in the saddle? We offer rides for different levels and trips of varying length so your answers to these questions will help us offer you the rides you’ll enjoy most.

Second, there are many reasons to take any vacation. Riding vacations have the additional features beyond the riding – you can practice a foreign language, make friends from around the world, try new culinary delights, ride a different style or breed of horse, experience life in a rural atmosphere, see some spectacular scenery and spend time with yourself without technology’s constant chat. You can learn or improve your dressage and jumping in Spain or Africa. By day two your newest friend will be your horse – steady, reliable but ready to run when you are. These horses are chosen for their balance, calmness and athletic abilities. In Africa you can race alongside wildebeest, in Ireland pause on the top of a hill surrounded by ancient stone walls with the ocean as your background. Swim with your horse in the warm waters on an island in Greece or feel yourself dwarfed by the mighty Redwood trees of California. You’ll absorb culture too, from stone churches to handing out school supplies in India to Roman arches or visiting a nomadic family in their yurt in Mongolia.

So you’ll leave home with excitement and maybe a little nervous anticipation and return home with a sense of accomplishment, an adventurous new streak, knowledge, photographs and new friends.

Go alone of travel with friends, both options are easy. We’ll give you all the details you need to get there, a list so you’ll bring the right equipment and we’ll help you pick the right trip to ride with confidence.
